    As usual, I have several books on the go at the moment:

    The Memoirs of Charles Greville (Vol. 2; the London Library's copy of Vol 1 seems to have gone astray). Greville was a senior civil servant from the 183s to the 1860s, and knew all the major politicians of the day. In the present Volume, the Great Reform Bill is on its way through Parliament, William IV has just succeeded George IV, and a cholera epidemic is sweeping through Europe.

    London Overground, by Iain Sinclair. Sinclair walks the route of the 'Ginger Line' which is an overground rail line which goes around That London.

    Just finished: The Old Ways by Robert Macfarlane. Macfarlane travels old routes in Britain and beyond. He's an excellent writer, whom I've only just discovered.

    Today I am mostly reading about the QAnon conspiracy. Most illuminating!

    Sir Thomas Urquhart of blessed memory: irrefragable Royalist, man of letters, proposer of a Universal Language, and the exalter of The Admirable Crichton. What edition of The Jewel did you read, Joe? i have my eye on a Scottish Academic Press edition but it is a bit pricey given these lean times. Some claimed that died in during a fit of laughter on the restoration of the monarchy in 1660.
